As part of the implementation of the RWTH Institutional Strategy II, in the second phase of the Excellence Initiative, proven governance structures as established in the fist phase were further strengthened and complemented by the newly established Profile Areas and the Strategy Fund.

These steps contribute to RWTH’s steady transformation into an internationally recognized Integrated Interdisciplinary University of Technology.

With the implementation of the Institutional Strategy I, based on new governance principles, the University has introduced a restructuring process at the Rectorate and faculty levels. This process has had a sustainable impact on decision-making processes and internal resource distribution systems.

The core governance structures established in the first phase of the Excellence Initiative include the Strategy Board and a professionalized Faculty Management.
